January 20,2018 marked the date we hosted our 1st Annual Vision Board Experience. It was a phenomenal event. Many people came out and networked as well as engaged in charting their visions believing God’s best for their lives. Our guest speaker Jeanine Lewis captivated the crowd with her inspirational words. Stating, “vision’s and dreams are of God and that he has created each and everyone of us on purpose.” Mrs. Lewis paraphased John 5. leaving us with the charge to Get up, Take up, Walk and Maintain.
In this biblical story Jesus was back in Jerusalem, where there was a pool called Bethesda with five alcoves. There where hundreds of sick people, blind, crippled and paralyzed laying in these alcoves around the pool. People gathered their because when the pools where stirred they could find their healing. One man had been their for thirty – eight years. When Jesus saw him stretched out by the pool he asked him, “do you not want to get well? ” The man stated, ” I don’t have anybody to put me in the pool. By the time I get there, somebody else is already in.” Jesus said, Get up, take your bedroll and start walking.” The man was healed on the spot! “Notice, Jesus asked him did he want to be healed, the same thing can be asked of us,” Mrs. Lewis stated. Do you want your purpose, your destiny, do you want to live out your dreams? Do not let your history prevent you from obtaining your destiny!
1. Get up!
2. Pick up your bed and get out of your comfort zone!
3. Walk it out and look at your environment making sure you are not surrounding yourself by dying people! 4. Develop your maintenance plan and keep it up!
The ultimate vision board experience was more than networking and crafting it was each and every individual in that room getting up and taking all that God has in store for them. Dreams, goals and apirations came alive and they placed it in front of them on their boards taking the first step torward their victory
